Naramata races coming later this month

Naramata regatta features paddle board races and fun games

A Naramata Afternooner is coming Sept. 26 to Manitou Park.

The Naramata Cider Co. partners up with Sun N’ Sup Paddleboards and the Naramata Playschool Society to celebrate Naramata’s longstanding tradition – The Regatta. The Naramata Cider Co. is in the ‘hood to celebrate the launch of their handcrafted hard ciders as they partnered with Sun N Sup Paddleboards and the Naramata Playschool Society to throw down the first of many Cider socials.  Cider, sausages and old-school cider social fun runs are from noon to 4 p.m., complimenting a new era of Naramata Regatta-ing via Sun N Sup’s Amazing Race which kicks off at 8:30 am. The festivities will include a gourmet Oyama sausage, entertainment, regatta races, paddleboard demos and old-school orchard fun and games.  Proceeds from ticket sales go to the Naramata Playschool Society. Naramata Cider Co. was established in 2015 by Miranda and Del Halladay of Elephant Island Winery to celebrate the wealth of fruit and the hard working, farming proud spirit that Naramata is built on. Tickets can be purchased at or at the Naramata General Store. Register for race at
